Dr Bach is the doctor to seek for any neuromuscular diseases. Very few doctors across the US have an approach similar to Dr Bach. His out-of-the-box treatment style works much better in improving & maintaining the quality of life than traditional methods. He is easy to get in touch with through email and phone. His bedside manner is great, and he cares about his patients. Most importantly, he inspires you to never give up, and you feel optimistic when you leave his office no matter how difficult things may be.

Dr. Bach and his team (Lou) are truly remarkable. They are the most caring and devoted people in the medical industry. Their revolutionary treatment has drastically improved the quality of life for those patients who were lucky enough to discover them. Standing at the patients bedside, Dr. Bach & Lou remind me of sports fans routing for their team to succeed.
